    UPDATE: 12/03/2010 10:00AM CST

    FROM JOE'S MOM:

    There has been a possible sighting of a car that fits the description of Joe's.

    There is reason to believe that Joe might have headed to northern Wisconsin

    so please alert all family and friends in the north.

    There was a possible sighting in Wausau and we have other information

    leading us to believe that he was heading north.

    Update from yesterday:

    12/06/2010 11:10AM CST

    FROM JOE'S BROTHER:

    Right now the last true piece of evidence had him in Madison,

    but we've heard of car sightings in Minnesota.

    Its likely he's in Wisconsin but he could be anywhere

    as he's been missing for almost a week.

    The Social Media Amber Alert: A Personal Story

    At the end of November, Joe Sjoberg went missing. He was last seen by his roommate on Monday, November 29, in Madison, Wisconsin, where the two shared a home. A graduate of Carleton College in Minnesota known for his extroversion and warm, welcoming personality, his disappearance was a shock to those who knew him. Distraught, Joe's family filed a missing persons report, and a case was opened with the Madison Police Department. But while the Madison Police conducted their investigation in the usual manner, Joe's family and friends refused to wait by the phone for news.

    The family started a Facebook group entitled "HELP JOE SJOBERG MISSING." The Facebook page has since become a home base for a Web-wide mobilization effort, a call to arms to find Joe and bring him home safely to his parents and friends. But Joe's brothers, Robert and Patrick, didn't stop there, pushing a flyer with Joe's face and standardized message onto Facebook, Twitter, and social news forums throughout the Web.
    .......................
    "While our hope is to use our story to spread awareness of Joe's disappearance and to get him home safe, we understand that his disappearance alone is not national news. We believe, however, that our ability to leverage social media into immediate action is a compelling and timely story. Our search has been extensive and wide reaching, yet conducted completely through the Internet," Mandell-Rice said. "It is an experience that offers hope to all families who suffer this kind of a tragedy. There is something that can be done. There is hope."

    If you want to raise awareness of Joe's disappearance, tweet "Please RT, #JoeSjoberg has gone missing in WI. Please help us find him. http://bit.ly/ieE12p or http://on.fb.me/HelpFindJoe

    Family, Friends Using Social Media to Search for 22-Year Old Man

    LOS ANGELES (CBS) 22-year old Joe Sjoberg was last seen by his roommate in Madison, Wis., on Monday, Nov. 29, 2010. Sjoberg's family filed a missing persons report and the case is now assigned to the Madison Police Department.

    On Thursday, Dec. 2, 2010, instead of waiting for leads from authorities, Sjoberg's family took matters into its own hands, launching a social media "amber alert." I spoke to Joe Sjoberg's brother Robert in the video below about the disappearance and how his family has been using the online community to get tips from people and to mobilize volunteers in the search.
